Microsoft Paying for Positive Xbox One Coverage on YouTube

dskzero Re:Well (128 comments)

I play a lot of different games, though most of them are towards the surreal or horror setting. Currently I am playing Cry of Fear, Left 4 Dead 2 and DOTA2, plus a few games I play to kill time, those being The Binding of Isaac and Prisoner of Ice. I also play whatever indie release sounds like fun, the last ones I played were Papers, Please, Sword and Sworcery and Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs.

I thought it would be the case: I would come back to OoT but I just couldn't get into it. I've been trying to play Majora's Mask for years and I just can't find the inspiration. I certainly believe those to be great games, I just can't play them anymore.

I've been at that point for the last ten years. Once I grew out of Pokémon and Zelda I haven't had any reason to play a console game.

Venezuela: Cheap Television Sets For All!

dskzero Re:Wow (702 comments)

You see, I'm not even solid middle class, though I have a degree that took me 8 years to get because I had to work to pay for college. I have a job and I *still don't make as much money* as some leech that's living off welfare. I am angry because despite working my ass off and getting an education I can't get off the ground. Instead, we get laws that protect criminals, leeches and corrupts. Chavistas have been "attempting to do something" for 15 years by now. Obviously, they have no idea what they are doing, and in the process we live in a country which minimun wage is around 50 bucks. An underage girl who gets pregnant by a killer who's in jail and lives with her grandmother makes more money than, say, an engineer. I understand she might need it, but this country is raising a generation of people who don't want to work for a living, because they want to suck off the government, who, fishing for votes, encourages it. TL;DR: I'm not, and you're talking bullcrap you have no idea about.

Venezuela: Cheap Television Sets For All!

dskzero Re:Hidden Agenda (702 comments)

They will probably end up eating them, since there is a food shortage as well. Also, toilet paper shortage.

Thanks. Fortunately, it is, but at some point this madness will hit everything in the country.

Venezuela: Cheap Television Sets For All!

dskzero This was just a personal vendetta or vote fishing. (702 comments)

Prices are so high in Venezuela because of inflation and exchange control. A dollar is worth 6.30 Bs according to the government but it's nearly impossible to get them, so you have to search in the black market where it goes for at least 60 Bs. This store (Daka) though wasn't importing merchandise, so the prices were not just, but since it was allied with the government, it was allowed to sell at whatever prices: something happened, either they screwed up or this is just an election ploy (there are elections next month). Now, the rest of the affected stores ARE importing, and why would they do it now? Since Venezuela's production is nearly zero, this will only lead to broke merchants, and less market fluidity. And these "cheap television sets"? They are being sold at three or four times their price in the black market. As ussual, Chavists are breaking this country apart.

Illegal Downloading Now a Crime In Japan With Increased Penalties

dskzero Re:Fighting Piracy is Good for Open Source (286 comments)

Very well said. I'm pretty sick of people going "I AM SO TALENTED BUT PIRACY DOES NOT ALLOW ME TO LIVE OFF MY ART". Open Source "Art" sounds like a good idea if you do it for free, a buzzword if you don't.

This. I don't know why people spend so much for protection for their phones instead of being careful.

The Rebirth of PC Gaming? Bring On the Modders!

dskzero Re:The questions developers ask (249 comments)

Console gamers generally don't really want mods. They want either DLC or a new game, because it's faster and easier. No offense intended: it's a different market.

The Rebirth of PC Gaming? Bring On the Modders!

dskzero Re:The questions developers ask (249 comments)

Are you fucking retarded? Do you realize that mods like DOTA have contributed more to WC3 and TFT sales than anything Blizzard could have done, for ONE example? Do you think people would want a goddamn Doom 4 if Doom didn't had such an awesome and long lasting modding community? Do you have any idea of what you're talking about or are you a console baby trying to sound smart?

Windows 7 Is the Next Windows XP

dskzero Re:Excellent News! (504 comments)

* Device drivers for Win7 is a pain in the neck with the signing and the x64/32-bit. I have to hack in certain drivers and some manufacturers still haven't released a driver and XP drivers although they use the same model and similar kernel simply can't be used for some reason.

This is funny because Win7 drivers have been lengendary for me. Stable and spot on, even for that webcam that's like 15 years old.
